Google Plus - Social Linking


Advertisements


Google+ allows us to connect our Google+ account with other social networks. Without permission, Google won't share our personal things. It provides an opportunity to link with Google+ business page. When people search for us on Google, our profile pops up on the right side of search results.

This linking primarily affects the SEO and also increases the traffic to our website/page. We can link our Google+ account to any social platform so that people active on other platform can reach our page through these links.
